This is just a quick one to more or less summarise but just a little piece of this society we all live in.

Make a wish in the abyss like a well,

no water for the poor but food in jail,

young man robs old man all so frail,

young man gets caught but then gets bail,

old man can't get up now he's down, 

Nobody can even see him on the ground,

instead of walking to, the walk around,

it's like he no longer exists in this world.....


Silly girl so young and so naive,

puppy love is tugging on her lead,

she thought that they were in the own league

until he takes advantage and then leaves.

Breaks her heart and who's to say...

that this girl won't be gone in a day.


What's next?...

Boy brags about all this sex,

all his mates see the hickies on his neck,

but then his phone rings, he starts to sweat....

then rushes to the clinic to get checked!



To be continued.......................................................

Wow... There's so much truth in this: extreme poverty in places when people live in extravagance, the elderly that need a helping hand but no one cares enough to lend one, girls just wanting to be wanted and boys driven by desire. I loved every line of this, keep me updated when you upload again :)
